Acid indigestion as Migraine cause
Mr H, a 48 year old headmaster, had developed chest pains and was burping constantly. He was no longer able to enjoy a glass of wine and took a great number of antacid tablets daily. He passed loose bowel motions frequently and had poor circulation, with moderately high blood pressure and chilblains in the winter. He said his digestion had been poor since leaving university. He also endured migraine attacks at least once a month, with tingling fingers, flaming lights and vomiting. Mr H suffered from insomnia, waking three or four times nightly. He confessed to not enjoying sport and his only exercise was walking the family dog in the evening. Mr H's priority was to relieve his indigestion. His remedy was chosen carefully to reduce muscular tension (evident in the headaches, blood pressure and indigestion), relieve circulatory problems and improve digestion.
